Four Ways Toward A New Energy Economy

Article | February 25, 2020

The American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE) released a report in January 2020 that examines four notable policy approaches identified as having the potential to accelerate the transition to a renewable energy economy and achieving scientifically based reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The report, Advancing America’s Climate Leadership: Policy Options That Most Effectively Put Renewable Energy to Work, discusses specific advantages and limitations of each policy option, individually and in combination. Authored by ACORE’s Greg Wetstone, President and CEO; Bill Parsons, COO; Lesley Hunter, VP of Programs; and Tyler Stoff, Policy Manager, this report offers design recommendations for policymakers to optimize implementation.

OPTIMIZING COGENERATION POWER PLANTS TO MANAGE RENEWABLE ENERGY EFFICIENTLY AND ECONOMICALLY

Article | February 25, 2020

A cogeneration, or Combined Heat and Power (CHP), plant uses a heat engine or power station to produce electric and thermal energy simultaneously from a single fuel source. A primary benefit of using a cogeneration system is that it can capture thermal energy for heating that is otherwise wasted in a conventional power plant. Utility companies today face the challenge of transitioning to the utilization of renewable energy for both electricity production and district heating systems.

Major Sustainability Impact via Renewable Power

Article | February 25, 2020

Globally, there is increased interest and investment in sustainable forms of energy via commercialized renewable power technologies such as solar (thermal and photovoltaics), wind, biomass, geothermal, and other viable sources that are at the center stage. As part of the definitive pathways towards de-carbonization, investors, lenders, market players, and policymakers are increasingly becoming aware of the need for flexibility in the energy value and supply chain. This key area is a critical market segment wherein renewable power technologies are expected to play an important role in both front of-the-meter (FTM) and behind-the-meter (BTM) applications. Accordingly, renewable power is an attractive option to power generators, process plants, commercial and industrial (C&I), institutional, and residential facilities in reducing overall carbon footprint.

RENEWABLE ENERGY: IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON PROJECT SPECIFIC INSURANCE

Article | February 25, 2020

We are certain that everyone involved in renewable energy projects are thinking about the impact Covid-19 will have on your projects being planned, built or operated. The following blog is not to be used as a full guideline, but rather an overview of our perspective on the situation. With the global Covid-19 escalation, it is likely that both the developers and the OEM’s are thinking “what impact will Covid-19 have on the completion of my project” and “can I still meet my PPA deadline?’ The first question to consider is whether a delay caused by a Force Majeure event insurable? The short answer is that no, a delay in this scenario would not be covered. Insurance is about Physical Damage to the subject matter insured, which is the Works. An outbreak of Covid-19 is not a Physical Damage event.
